Oz Lotteries has given away $75,000 to a lucky Aussie as part of its first month of the Daily Winners Membership Program. Mark M from Victoria was in disbelief on the phone to Oz Lotteries when he received a special call.
“This is a joke, isn't it? You're pulling my leg,” Mark said when he heard the news he is $75,000 richer.
A new customer, Mark explained to the Oz Lotteries team that he took a chance and signed up on a whim whilst buying a Thursday Powerball ticket.
“I bought Powerball last Wednesday and just signed up to the app and then seen that (Daily Winners Loyalty Program).
And I thought, yeah, whatever, I might as well go in it. You got to be in it to win it.
But yeah, nothing ever like this has ever happened to me.”
A first-time winner of such a large prize Mark was emotional explaining just how much the prize money means to him. Mark plans to spend his winnings renovating his house, paying off debt and hopefully buying a new car.
“I can clear my debts. I can do, yeah, renovations to my house, it does a lot. It means absolutely f*** everything. It pulls me out of a lot of s***”
The Oz Lotteries Daily Winners program launched in September to offer customers more free chances to win more often. With daily and monthly draws the program gives away $500 everyday, $2,500 on Friday and has a major monthly draw each month.
The first month of the program gave away over $97,000 to 30 lucky winners with October's giveaways shaping up to be even bigger.
October’s monthly draw will give away another $75,000 cash to an Oz Lotteries customer, with an additional $10,000 Halloween themed draw aimed at helping Aussies pay off some spooky bills.
Daily Winner Members are also rewarded with discounts and special offers at over 150+ retailers including Woolworths, Kogan, Goodlife plus more.
